Review Sony Xperia Acro S Smartphone


Outdoor multimedia sport device. The Acro S bridges the gap between multimedia smartphones with a large screen and outdoor suitable sport devices. We scrutinized how well these two very different application fields can be merged and whether there...

Homogeneous screen illumination, Bright, high-contrast screen, Decent battery life, IP55 / IP57 certification, Docking station included, The smartphone copes with all demands despite older hardware and did not exhibit any performance bottlenecks during...

High RRP (EUR 400), Non-removable battery, Fairly thick casing, Relatively heavy, A viewing angle increase and richer color IPS screen would better match the purchase price of 399 Euros (~$521). Also, the 12.1 MP camera alongside an actually...

Sony Xperia acro S review: Daring droid


After the touchscreen revolution swept the mobile world, rugged smartphones became much harder to come by. They are making a slow return now though, with Sony Mobile being one of the key players in that market.

Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support ; Quad-band 3G with 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; Bright 4.3" 16M-color capacitive LED-backlit LCD touchscreen of HD resolution (720 x 1280 pixels) with Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine ; IP57 certification - dust...

Chipset is rather modest for the class ; Thicker than most rivals ; Display viewing angles are mediocre ; No preinstalled document editor ; Non-user-replaceable battery

The Sony Xperia acro S review course is complete and it's now time to check out its scorecard and see if it's worth your hard-earned cash. To be honest, it's not easiest thing to call, as the worth of the Xperia acro S is very much dependent on how...

Sony Xperia acro S Review


The Android-powered Sony Xperia acro S is the kind of phone you actually won't hesitate bringing to the beach or putting on the edge of a swimming pool. That's because it is IP-57 certified, meaning that it can withstand a 30 minute dunk underwater at...

Resistant to dust and water damage ; Incredibly detailed display ; Rich multimedia feature set

Thick and bulky ; Capacitive buttons are uncomfortable to use

Let's be serious, people. The Sony Xperia acro S may not be the best smartphone out there, but it is the ultimate water-resistant Android handset that money can buy outside of Japan. Sure, we cannot deny that it is a bit bulky and its capacitive keys...

Sony XPERIA acro S Review


A durable phone that needs a bit more polish

Water and dust resistant, great audio, vibrant display

Port covers feel a bit flimsy, capacitive buttons don’t always register, camera has mixed results

The XPERIA acro S sports the Snapdragon S3, and while this isn’t the speediest member on the block, it’s still fast enough to power the phone with little to no lag. The on-board 16GB of storage is enough to hoard plenty of photos and apps, but you can...
